I have been working at Kona Grill part-time

Pros

The scheduling if very flexible. With the use of online scheduling it is easy to get shifts covers or pick up shifts.

Cons

Too big of a menu, ranging from pizza to sushi---with no real speciality. Quantity over quality in this case. Clientele is just as broad as the menu, making it hard to distinguish if it's supposed to be fine dining or a cheap bar.

Advice to Management

Be hands on and don't focus on micromanaging. These two things affect turnover rates.

    Pros

    Kona Grills Corporate office has a lively, upbeat, happy atmosphere that spreads infectiously through the restaurant locations. The corporate staff truly cares about their location employees and making sure that they have every available resource needed. The communication between the corporate office and site locations is impeccable and everyone works together with a smile. The entire staff has the mindset to get the job done, get it done with accuracy, and have fun while doing it in a professional manner. Great group of managers and support staff. I would work with these lovely individuals again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    The corporate office is very small, there is not enough room for the entire support staff, but they are moving into a new office that should give more leg room to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, keep up with the team building and employee appreciation. The staff is obviously loved and it shows in how they pride themselves in their work. I would say to encourage more team building from department to department, that would be the only constructive criticism I could give for Kona.
